Well, it was a looong time ago. It was a short card with two RCA (phono)
jacks as I recall. I had it installed in a Hyundai (yes, same as the car
maker) 386/DX20. I seem to recall I'd get somewhere in the middle of the

There is a small chance that I still have it hiding in a box somewhere.
It would be in the corner of the basement that I'm working my way toward
cleaning. Perhaps I'll find it this spring. I'm not known for throwing

Over the years I've learned to never trust tape of any kind. I expect a
backup system to be completely trustworthy and until recently I haven't
found any I'd trust that much. Maybe I shouldn't now, either - but I
haven't been burned lately.
